Family dog is seriously unimpressed with new head gear
Koda is one and a half years old and he has a beautiful personality. He will put up with almost anything without protest. This is a good thing because he belongs to a family with young kids who adore him and love to play with him. He soaks up all the love and affection good naturedly. He also loves to play with toys that he can fetch or chew on, like this purple octopus. When his owner, Tianna dropped the octopus onto his head, Koda patiently sat perfectly still. Watching his eye, visible through the gap in the octopus' legs, we can see what appears to be a look of good-natured annoyance. He stares straight ahead, as if in disbelief over the indignity of having such a ridiculous toy on his head.
Tianna can't contain her amusement and she bursts out laughing at Koda. His eyes rotate to the right to look right at her and this expression seems almost human. He blinks and looks straight ahead again and if dogs could speak, it looks as if he would say: "Really Tianna?" There seems to be no doubt that he is questioning her maturity at this point, or he is mildly offended that she is laughing at his expense.
Then, in typical dog fashion, he flips his head back to get the toy octopus off of his face so he can chew it. All appears to be forgiven and he is now playing along with the game. He is able to get the toy in his mouth and make it squeak. Perhaps the look of disgust is a result of his own sense of humor and he's enjoying the game after all. The look he gives at the very end is enough to melt your heart.
Koda is a mix of german shepherd, husky, and golden retriever. Commonly called "mutts", these mixed breeds often combine the best of several breeds and have the most wonderful temperaments. They seem to make the best family dogs too. As you can see, Koda is a beloved family member and he enjoys all the privileges of family, including being welcome on the family couch right next to his people.
